Your Heart Will Melt Watching This NICU Nurse Be Reunited With Former Patients


Meet a very special nurse, Renee.

While handling new babies is never an easy job, Renee is a NICU nurse at WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, Georgia–caring for the most tiny, helpless, and fragile of all newborn patients.

Little babies

She has cared for thousands of premature babies over the years, treating them as lovingly as if they were her own children. When new parents are anxious and upset about being separated from their babies right after birth, it’s Renee (and others like her) who steps in and comforts the babies during those crucial first days of life.

Clearly, Renee means a lot to the parents of the babies she’s helped. That’s why a group of especially grateful moms and dads decided to surprise her with a very meaningful video. In it, they thanked her for all the amazing ways she’d helped their families.

Parents are grateful

Renee is clearly touched–but at the end of the video, something even better happens.
